Irrigation Process

Our irrigation installation process begins with a free estimate from us. We will set up an appointment with you to discuss your expectations, take measurements and develop a design plan. After you sign off on a design we can then start the project! A connection will need to be made to the water source and in most cases, when connecting to the public water supply, a backflow preventer will need to be installed. A vibratory plow is used to install the pipe and wire, whenever possible, to limit lawn damage. In some instances, trenching will need to be done, however it is kept to a minimum. Once all the necessary pipe is in the ground, we’ll install the final components including valve boxes and valves, make all connections, and mount and program the controller and rain sensor.

Whether you want to install a new irrigation system, revamp or repair your existing system, John Welch Enterprise will work closely with you to determine your needs and offer you the best solution for your situation and budget.

 

Spring Start Up

The spring start-up procedure begins with an appointment that is scheduled by us. We will call you a week or two ahead of time and let you know when we will be in your neighborhood. Once a date has been established we take it from there. Our service technician will locate the water source, charge the mainline and begin running through each zone checking for and completing minor adjustments, noting major issues and observing the overall performance of the system and its components. Once the system check is complete we will then program the clock for present weather conditions as well as present you with any major issues that need to be addressed. With your permission, we can repair most major issues that day or set up a follow-up appointment that works for you.

Emergencies will be handled accordingly and addressed as soon as possible. We arrive with a fully stocked trailer that contains just about any irrigation part that we will need to make the repair.
